NOTES FROM THE CALL:
You might have heard that it's not what you know, but who you know. Well skills are #1, but the last part is incorrect. It's not who you know, it's who knows you. In this session you will not only learn why networking smarter is important for your job, career, and life, but you will also:
• Level set your current networking skills with test (yes, a test)
• Have a better understanding of what networking means to you and what are the benefits
• Leave knowing what Networking Smarter really means
• Have a plan to build on the small exercises you do in this session
